grab by the democracy's president, mohamed morsi. right now, soldiers are setting up barricades as morsi's opponents plan a million man march in cairo's tahrir square later today. last night, army tanks surrounded the presidential palace as thousands of protesters waved flags and shouted "topple the regime." you may remember, that's the same chant heard during the revolution that brought down egypt's dictator hosni mubarak. in a tv address thursday, morsi failed to defuse growing anger, saying his absolute powers will expire with a new vote on resolution and constitution on december 15th. >>> speaking on human rights at a university in dublin, secretary of state hillary clinton called for urgent dialogue to ease the unrest in egypt. >> we call on all the stakeholders in egypt to settle their differences through discussion and debate, not through violence. >> clinton also called on egypt's leaders to protect the country's promise of post-revolution democracy. >>> back here at home, as the fiscal cliff standoff continues in washington, the president took his plan out of town to no
outside the presidential palace. egyptian president mohamed morsi is calling for a national dialogue but is resolute about his controversial constitution. nbc's ayman mohyeldin is joining us live from cairo monitoring the situation. let's start with egypt. how much more trouble is morsi in there? >> reporter: well, he's definitely politically isolated because all of egypt's major political factions have really come out against him for both the constitutional decree that gave him absolute powers nearly two weeks ago and kicked off all of these protests, but more importantly, they're very upset with him that he's trying to ram home this constitution that was drafted by an assembly made up mostly of islamist parties loyal to the president within just two weeks. so, that's fueled a lot of the street anger, left six people killed. it also brought out the military outside of the presidential palace. today, the opposition is calling for another million man march. no doubt, though, that the president's politically isolated and under mounting public pressure. mika? >> let's go back to syria.

on the constitution has become a referendum on egypt's islamic president, mohamed morsi. >> reporter: both sides of the egyptian political divide plan major marches and rallies this morning. government supporters are calling a yes vote on the referendum a vote for islam. the opposition is fragmented and far less organized and decided only a few days ago to vote no rather than boycott the ballot. the new constitution was drafted by the ruling islamist party and its hard-line political allies. the mainly secular opposition says the 63-page document does not represent all of egypt's 83 million people and tramples on the rights of minorities such as christians. a major problem is a lack of monitors. a significant number of judges have refused to supervisor the 13,000 polling stations so the voting will have to be held over two days first in major cities an then in the countryside. many egyptians are simply growing weary after two years of political turmoil. adding to their woes is the effect on the economy. the tourism industry has been hard-hit and the prospects of attracting f
